The Campus Recreation Center Aquatic Complex includes three separate bodies of water:  Keating Aquatics Center, Leisure Pool, and Whirlpool. The lap pool is 50 meters by 22.88 meters (25 yards), has two 1 meter diving boards, and a 3 meter diving board. Depth varies from 4 feet to 13 feet. The lap pool is used for open recreation swimming, athletic practices, swimming lessons, and a variety of other aquatic programs.

Swim lessons are meant to be both a positive and enjoyable learning experience for the participant. It is our goal to provide the best learning environment possible to assist in achieving these goals. All swim lessons are taught by American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors.
